2021 Central Coast Vineyard Real Estate Report

2021 Central Coast Vineyard Real Estate Report

Paso Robles, CA., December 1st 2021 —
Another wildly successful year for vineyard real estate across Paso Robles and beyond, Realtor Jenny Heinzen facilitated over $35,000,000 in vineyard property sales in 2021.
The hot ticket? According to Heinzen, “Smaller vineyards are increasingly desirable. Motivated buyers from urban areas want the Central Coast lifestyle."
Here on California's Central Coast, the price per vineyard acre typically ranges from $20,000-$100,000 based on location and vineyard age.
"Paso Robles is a comparative bargain next to Sonoma and Napa Valley prices of $300,000-$500,000+ per acre—especially because the quality of the vineyards is on par." Heinzen shares.
"Beyond lifestyle vineyards, there continues to be a strong demand for commercial vineyards as well. Since mid-2020, it's been a rare seller's market for vineyard properties, especially in prime locations like Paso Robles Adelaida District and Monterey’s Santa Lucia Highlands AVA.” Heinzen notes.
